  • The sitter in this miniature remains unidentified. She does bear some resemblance to the woman who posed for the figure of Lady Jane Grey in Delaroche's famous painting 'The Execution of Lady Jane Grey' (London, National Gallery, NG1909). She has been identified as the actress Mlle Anaïs (1802-71).
